there are many functions and purposesof interest groups in our country. basically an interest group is a group of individuals who want to influence change within the government. these interest groups are for civil liberties, and this is one function. another function is that they want to change policies by directly dealing with people who have the authority to change these policies, or to put them into effect. they also build alliances, campaign assistance, as well as other forms of pressure as functions of their purpose.political parties on the other hand, want to run the government vs just influence it, and they want to make and enforce policies.
First, the Senator’s speech attempts to address the nation on their concerns of his affiliation with Reverend Wright. Second, the speech addresses the sustaining and prevailing issues of race within America and how it paralyzes our nation. The speech is compelling because it possesses the necessary elements of effective and persuasive rhetoric. Rhetoric is the study of opposing arguments, misunderstanding, and miscommunication. Also, rhetoric will be defined as the ability to speak and write effectively and to use language and oratory strategically.
My analysis mainly focuses on semantic fields and syntax. A semantic field of fear runs throughout the discourses of both Blair and Bush. Bush began his speech with the following sentence; “Good evening… series of deliberate and deadly terrorist attacks”. Blair also opts to utilise the same method “it was the events of September 11 that marked a turning point in history, where we confront the dangers of mankind, it was tragedy, an act of evil”. Due to the semantic field of fear and terror running throughout the discourses of Bush and Blair their choice of lexis is crucial in conveying their political ideologies.
The media have a tremendous power in setting cultural guidelines and in shaping political discourse. Some biases come across subtly and some come across very bluntly. I'm going to show you how to detect bias in the media. Some of the things to consider is how does the journalist/host present arguments? Are they mostly one sided, or are there alternative points of view?
It is seen as a sacred symbol, symbol of strength and unity and represents freedom of speech. The American flag is a powerful “sacred symbol.” The American Flag serves as a symbol that clearly says “America.” The unifying Symbol of America in war, and peace, and the symbol of honor, pride, and sacrifice. This symbolizes our freedom, and our government, and is displayed at our schools and other public institutions. While others may protest against the flag and burn it as a political stunt, or to make a political statement. Protesters may also wrap themselves in the America flag to serve a point of destruction.
The media has been used to try to convince the public the will of the government. The media has a large impact on the freedom of free speech. The government attempts to control what the media reports by carefully releasing press releases and making reporters subject to security clearances before they are allowed in war zones. In fact, the Espionage Act of 1917 allows the President to have the final authority to determine whether the press could publish information about the conduct of the war. One example of the media promoting wartime was during the 1800’s when the yellow journalist competed against each other in order to get the best stories during the war between Spain and Cuba erupted.

President Roosevelt used Pathos and Logos to attract the nation to the idea that if we did not act swiftly with force we would get attacked again and many more innocent lives would be taken. Roosevelt used the fact that Japan attacked not only Midway, but also Hong Kong, Guam, Philippine Islands and Wake Island along with attacks on American ships between San Francisco and Honolulu. The attack of this nature is the showing of unethical behavior that had to be stopped. This speech was given by Franklin D. Roosevelt on 8 December 1941 to the Senate, House and the citizens of America. This speech was given to the people by Roosevelt to show that he had declared a state of war, due to the actions of the Empire of Japan.
Patriotism Persuasion Propaganda - American war posters Past exhibition The above is one example of an image included in an exhibition of posters from World War II. When America entered World War II after the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbour, the federal government started producing and distributing informational material to attract public support for financial, industrial and personal sacrifices needed to mount the war effort. The posters had a significant role in the war. Sixty years on this exhibition conveys the power of the medium to arouse patriotic sentiments and encourage popular participation in government programs. Exhibition toured from 5 May 2006 to 14 April 2008 to Wyndham Cultural Centre, National Archives , Redcliffe Museum, Pine Rivers Heritage Museum, Manning Regional Art Gallery, Wagga Wagga Regional Art Gallery.
